Spring Slim Down 2022 Winners!

SSD 2022 winners

I am continuously impressed by our LSF community. All the women in this community worked their butts off in this challenge. Not only was I inspired by your AMAZING transformation photos but your stories nearly brought me to tears. 

I am so proud of each and every one of you! You all finished this 8-Week Challenge strong which will help to create wonderful habits that will last a lifetime. Thank you for pushing yourselves and our community to be the best we can be! 

While we are on the subject, we need to shoutout our SSD winners! These women put their all into this 8-Week Challenge. These fabulous women, not only have incredible transformation photos but the most heart warming stories! It is my pleasure to introduce you: 


Lindsay, @linds.lsf

This was Lindsay’s FIRST challenge with us! She absolutely crushed this challenge and she lost 6lbs within this 8-Week Challenge. This challenge saved her and helped to create amazing new habits that she plans to stay consistent with. 

“Three weeks into the challenge, my blood pressure readings fell into the healthy range where they belong. They’ve been in that healthy range ever since. It’s crazy how fast my body responded to a few simple improvements. I started taking care of it and it immediately returned the favor.During the challenge, I lost 6 pounds and a couple inches off of my waist, hips, and thighs. But I gained an “I can do this” attitude and that’s made all the difference. Now I feel ready to tackle new challenges such as dedicated meal prep and leveling up to advanced workouts in the app. This whole experience ended on a high note for me because just a few weeks ago, my boyfriend took me engagement-ring window shopping! So what started out as a commitment to my health is turning into the beginning of the rest of my best life. “

Runner Ups

Emilee, @lsf_emjenn

Emilee was ready to crush this challenge right from the start and she did just that! This was her first challenge with us and she lost 7lbs! She has the most amazing story to share: 

“I’m so grateful to have found Love Sweat Fitness. I have hypothyroidism genetically and have always struggled with my weight since college. After having my daughter in 2013, I was diagnosed with PCOS and could not lose weight no matter which diet/exercise program I tried.  The frustrating thing about PCOS is that you can heal it if you lose weight, but it’s really difficult to lose it because of that condition. Some exercise programs I tried would have exercises that are painful on the joints, and, at age 44 and overweight, I would find them hard to continue. Nutrition would always leave me feeling hungry. I was very frustrated. I stumbled upon one of Katie’s videos on YouTube, searching for help in managing my hypothyroidism and weight. I loved that she shared a similar story with hypothyroidism so I decided to join the Spring Slim Down Challenge and 8 weeks later I’m amazed at my results. Not only have I lost weight (7 pounds), but I’ve re-shaped my body and feel in control of my health for the first time in a long time!  The most challenging part for me was forming a routine of exercise and nutrition that I had confidence in that would work for me! Once I started seeing changes of weight loss and muscle tone in my body, I was thrilled and that motivated me to keep going. The Team LSF ladies encouraged me and I loved that I could ask questions along the way of them and also the Team/Nutritionists/Katie. The LSF protein is a big contributor to my success as well as the nutrition plans because they took the guesswork out of everything for me.” 

Megan, @meg.an_lsf

Megan’s transformation is so inspiring. Her transformation photo is incredible but I am talking about her story! This was her first challenge with us and she lost 7lbs and said this challenge changed her life!

“I found LSF through YouTube one day…what caught my attention was that she also had a history of trying to figure out what worked best for her. I am 33 years old and I’ve tried everything under the sun! This is the first program I’ve not only been able to establish a solid routine with but it’s so manageable to want to continue every single day. I’ve actually been following the LSF system since the end of January. And my starting weight then was 158, down to 134 now! I have also gone down 4 sizes in jeans! My favorite part of this challenge was meeting so many women and being able to communicate with them and with the LSF team throughout this journey! It really is the absolute best support team! I am so incredibly thankful for Love Sweat Fitness, it has changed my life, my outlook, my routine, my day to day living, my motivation, my goals, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, my happiness! I have never felt more comfortable and confident in my own skin!”

Our Pink Heart Award goes to Tamsi, AKA @tamsi_lsf

I am sure this came as no surprise to anyone, Tamsi was so kind and encouraging to everyone during this challenge. She not only encouraged everyone else but her own commitment to this challenge shed light and inspiration to others throughout the challenge!

All of these women crushed the Spring Slim Down Challenge and went above and beyond for themselves and for this whole community. I cannot wait to see the amazing transformations and encouragement to one another in our next challenge!

Our next challenge starts June 13th!

LSF 30 2022 WINNERS! – Love Sweat Fitness

LSF 30 2022 WINNERS! – Love Sweat Fitness

LSF 30 winners

I legitimately get more proud of our LSF community all the time — and that’s especially true of this LSF 30 Challenge. What a way to start the year! You gals came out of the gate swinging and I’m floored by how much everyone changed not just their bodies, but their entire lives in just 30 days’ time! 

If you finished the challenge, you should feel SO proud of yourself. By the end of January, you created habits that will help you be, look, and feel your best all year long. And that’s what LSF is all about! Thank you for showing up for yourself and our community. It’s so inspiring to see how many of us stuck with it through the entire month. 

Speaking of inspo, we’ve got to talk about your challenge winners! These women are seriously incredible! Not only do their before and after pics speak for themselves, but they’re also the sweetest, coolest people. I’d like to introduce you:  


Melissa, @melissaa_lsf

Melissa joined Team LSF in the summer of 2019. She’s got two beautiful gifts and an amazing husband. She works in HR, loves coffee and football, and is always down to try new things. 

“After the LSF 30 Challenge, I finally felt happy, confident, and in control of my health habits again,” she says. Melissa also says she’s going to stick with her HMBP and working out 4-5 days each week. Not only is she dedicated to taking care of herself physically, but she says she’s also going to keep journaling and doing her daily affirmations. 

To keep herself on track, she’s got a plan: “Checking in with team LSF and keeping my goals in mind — knowing that when I take care of myself I feel good!”

Runner Ups

Toni; @toneituptoni_lsf

Like Melissa, Toni keeps busy with her two kids — boys this time! — and husband. She loves going on adventures with her sons and walks on the beach with her husband. On top of that, she runs her own business. She started it in 2016 after getting let go of her job of a decade, and if that’s not a testament to resilience, I don’t know what is! 

The LSF 30 challenge was Toni’s intro to our LSF community — and what a way to start! She says, “I can’t believe how amazing I feel (and look!) after only 30 days of working out and eating clean! LSF has changed the way I think and feel about food, which has been the most freeing thing of all coming from a girl who has literally tried every diet under the sun since she was 14.” 

She plans to stick with everything she learned during the challenge. What I really love is that when Tori’s feeling down, she’ll put on one of my YouTube videos to get herself motivated again. She also says, “Engaging and interacting with fellow LSF girls is the best and keeps me going!”

April; @april_teamlsf

We really saw moms come through on this challenge, and April is no exception. Not only does she have an 8-month-old baby girl, but she’s also mom to a 3-year-old corgi. April’s a married pastor and you can usually find her walking her neighborhood or savoring a coffee at one of her local cafes. 

“I felt AMAZING after the challenge,” she says. “I’ve had so much inner confidence radiating within since the challenge and have really been going after the goals I set for myself in my career and in health and fitness. This challenge really motivated me to take time for me since almost every roll call was focused on self-care in some way — and to find ways to move again after a very long break due to pregnancy and postpartum recovery.”

April plans to stick with the 2-Day Detox for the first two days of each month to reset and keep herself on track. She’s also using her HBMP to meal plan for each week. 

April’s got a lot of support at home — her husband is super encouraging, which I love! But she’s also tapped into Team LSF. “Every time I pop on Instagram, I see major motivation with all the babes crushing their daily workouts and goals. That is just SO motivating and encouraging, and it makes me want to do the same. Any time I’m faced with a challenging workout, I always remember all the babes cheering me on and giving me major inspo, and that keeps me going!” 

Heidi; @heidi_lsf

Heidi hails from New Zealand and works with her local elderly community. She’s crafty and loves to diamond paint, cross-stitch, and more. She also enjoys reading and spending time in nature. 

A Team LSF member since January 2018, Heidi says one of her first workouts was one of our vids. 

“After the challenge, I felt strong, confident, and happy,” she says. “I felt healthy again.”

I absolutely love Heidi’s new year’s resolution, which was to choose herself this year. For her, that’s meant drinking plenty of water and staying on track with her workouts. She’s still sticking with her resolution and turns to the LSF community regularly. “My favorite part of LSF is the endless amount of support and love in the community — and making friends,” she says.

Our Pink Heart Award goes to our girl, Angel! AKA @lsf_angel

Our Pink Heart winner for this challenge is Angel, who’s also a mom! When she found LSF on YouTube in August last year, she says she had lost hope in finding a fitness program that works for her. We’re so glad we could be a part of turning things around!

Angel says she felt amazing after the challenge. “I felt like myself again,” she explains. “I was stronger, more motivated, proud, and consistently pushing myself daily!”

She said something else I really love, too: “I have completely changed my bad eating habits and now I eat to fuel my body and I never feel guilty about any meals or snacks that I have!” That’s music to my ears.

Angel is still sticking with her new routine of waking up early and getting in her workout before she starts the day. “It really helps me stay on track when I see women from all over the world encouraging others and being honest about their ups and downs throughout their fitness journey,” she says. 

She loves that no matter her mood, she can find an LSF workout that fits. She’s also using our daily inspirational quotes and journaling to stay on track. 

Angel has a ton of great things to say about the LSF community, but one of her favorite parts is the support. “It’s never a contest, it’s never about who can do more reps, or sweat more, or have the most progress.  It’s just genuine love and caring as we are all on the same path, and we are ALL getting stronger and building confidence together!”

Aren’t these women amazing? I am so proud to be a part of Team LSF with them!!

Our next 8-week challenge starts on March 14th!
